    These are things I am curious about, as well. I was wondering how it will impact FTC using "Mego Style" in their descriptions. There was obviously nothing wrong with them using that and creating an entire business around it, but how does that change their position or how does their current position dictate what the actual Mego Corp can do?

    Also, I seem to remember Marty applying for trademark of the Mego name several years back. I don't remember the details or exactly when, but I remember something about it. Seems "Lego" was battling it, somehow. I'm sure plenty of the members here know the details I am missing about that.

    Marty did say that the whole Lego thing is not an issue now.

    Mego Corp. name and toys are coming back. Not all 8". Some new properties, possibly some old returning. 20 or so specific licences to be revealed in a couple weeks.


    Pure speculation:
    I was reading another thread where Doc had a planned new body, then people were disappointed he didn't release them yet. Is this the new Mego body???????

    Nice! Thanks! Perhaps some more retro-style Micronauts!

    ^ I believe I read that Marty said, on Saturday, Hasbro has the rights to Micronauts. Of course, I could be misremembering.

    Rampart, this is Squad 51. How do you read?
